Our family with young son had a delicious meal, friendly and great service and relaxed atmosphere. Our waitress was perfectly attentive and remembered not to bring our son's milk until his dinner was served.

After hearing great things about Mac's from family, I finally ate here recently. The reports were accurate, the steak is great. It is their specialty and they offered several different cuts and portion sizes. Mine was delicious! The salad I had was very fresh, and the cornbread with jalepeno(?) was a treat. The atmosphere was casual, and in the bar... More

We have been several times and always get a great meal. The steak tips in garlic butter are my fave! My son loves to get my leftovers. Though my husband did not like the lasagna (too many chunky veggies) he has always loved the steaks and burgers.

My husband and I were in town for a family event. We looked through the TripAdvisor reviews for restaurants in the Auburn-Lewiston area and talked to a few of the locals about where they'd recommend, and so we ended up here. I will say this was our absolute favorite meal in the area. The atmosphere is very casual, family-run, small... More

Excellent food. Steak was ordered medium rare. Came rare, but that was OK with me. It was tender with excellent flavor. They have a "personalize your steak" option with things to add to your steak including a wide selection of rubs and flavors. Rice was a little dry and lumpy - not terrible - not perfect either.

Now, I will admit, I am not a huge red meat eater, but this is one of the only places where a big bite of steak is delicious ! Always cooked perfectly ! I usually order a pasta or seafood dish and I am never disappointed. This visit, I ordered a pasta dish with pulled pork and blue cheese crumbles.... More

Mac's has a great atmosphere. There is usually a wait. The best plan is to reserve your seats. Like Meat? This is the place! say hi to Mike.

We arrived to this popular restaurant and knew there would be a wait time because we didn't make a reservation. There was a 45 minute wait. When we were brought to our table by the friendly hostess we were greeted by a friendly waitress. We ordered popcorn shrimp for our appetizer. It came out quickly and they were delicious! We...

Excellent beef. Great casual dining. I also buy fresh beef to grill at home. Ask for any rub so the beef marinates before grilling. The grill masters will give you tips on best cooking practices for your cut of meat.

We dined here with 7 for lunch during a recent college graduation weekend most recently but are repeat satisfied customers. Especially during busy weekends, the location is great as it is just outside the main downtown areas of Lewiston and Auburn and not always as packed and better than many there. Mac's is a casual, friendly, american steakhouse and bar... More

We are a high energy restaurant with a vibrant neighborhood bar and grill appeal. Though we are known for our steaks, you will find there is something on the menu to please anyone in your group. We serve Choice Black Angus beef which is hand cut daily on the premises. Whether you are looking for a full course meal, or just out for a cold beer and a great burger, you are sure to feel right at home. So, throw on your most comfortable jeans and join us for a great meal and lots of laughs. Just a couple miles from downtown Auburn, you can't miss our log cabin featuring a comfortable deck for outside dining.
